had a great april in southern indiana, limited out several days. crappies were hitting, a piture of my 6 year old with his 16" crappie is here in local indiana. i go there every spring for vacation and this was one of my best years for crappie and mushrooms. kids loved the fishing/hunting. taking them sunday to crappie fish at a big lake in northern indiana hope we can do some good. i used small jigs with, small minnows. seemed like the bigger crappie wanted that.
